Late Tuesday night the news broke that Bernie Sanders has beaten Hillary Clinton for the first time in any poll.
The Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll of 442 likely Democrat voters in New Hampshire has Bernie at 44% and Hillary 37%. Well outside the 4.7 margin of error.
In comparison, Sanders trailed Clinton by a 44-8 margin in a Franklin Pierce/Herald poll in March.
With recent endorsements from a Nurses Union and from rapper Lil B, Bernie is pulling off what nobody ever expected– a legitimate challenge to the former First Lady.
First Donald Trump takes over the GOP primary season and now socialist Bernie Sanders is drawing crowds of 28,000 and leading in the New Hampshire. What is going on?
When the news broke on Twitter last night, the comments were telling. The range of emotion this election season is drawing out of Americans is evident even in 140 characters or less.
Some people are excited about the news.

Bernie even got some good advice.
Bernie Sanders please get some suits that fit you some clothes that fit you properly. You will look more presidential

Sometimes a tweet will let us really see what people are thinking…

Despite all the love for self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, some people are still on the fence.
Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders will be receiving my vote

Thankfully, after all the pro-Bernie Sanders comments, finally one made sense.
It’s depressing, but not surprising that millennials like Bernie Sandrs so much.

The truth is, this is a crazy election season and this comment by Prepper Pete is right on point.
Bernie Sanders leading in NH now? People are so tired of Bush and Clinton that they are willing to vote for Bernie and Trump. It says a lot.

With this much activity 6 months away from the first vote, this election cycle is going to be grueling. Strap in–, this is going to be a long ride.
